Civil Service Employees Association, Local 1000. Records, 1937-1989. 43 microfilm reels ; 35 mm.
Founded in Albany, N.Y., in 1910 as the Association of State Civil Service Employees, the Civil Service Employees Association (CSEA) took its current name in 1946. In spite of New York's Taylor Law and its prohibitions against strikes by state employees, CSEA engaged in the first strike by the state's public employees in 1972. In 1978 the CSEA undertook a trial affiliation with the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) as Local 1000. CSEA became a permanent member of AFSCME, which in turn is the largest member of the AFL-CIO. [Since the early 1930s, CSEA has represented most of the people employed by the New York State Department of Mental Hygiene/Office of Mental Health.]
The records of the Civil Service Employees Association span from 1933 to 1988. The records include minutes of meetings, legal files, subject files, and records of resolution or motion.
